We all watched (and laughed) as Momma Dee’s tooth came out during the middle of one of her performances.
Momma Dee took it all in stride, making light of the whole thing, completely unashamed.
But I’m sure she realized if she’s going to do this singing thing, she’ll have to take care of that flipper situation, with something a little bit more permanent. Luckily, Dr. Heavenly, from “Married To Medicine,” was there to step in and help her fellow reality star sister out.
She installed a veneer.
But first, Momma Dee shared the story of how she lost the tooth in the first place.
“I was married to Scrappy’s daddy. We got into it. I remember that night before he went to revival. I told him when I get up, I want the diapers there because I had to put Scrappy on the nursery van. And I woke up and said, ‘Where is the diapers?’ He gon’ say, ‘Well, I didn’t get none.’ So we got into it. He cut off the light, I cut it on. He pushed me, I pushed him. He hit me in my mouth and he did this. (Pulls tooth out of her mouth.) I’m known, I’m a fighter. People were like, ‘Why you ain’t whoop his ass?” I said, ‘Bitch, I was on the floor trying to find my damn teeth.”
Not to make light of a very serious domestic violence situation but Momma Dee is seriously a great storyteller and I watched and re-watched that the video of her tooth transformation, just to hear her say that last line.
Remember how we were all so surprised to learn that Scrappy’s daddy was a pastor? Apparently, he wasn’t always the upstanding kind.
Anyway, now that I know the full backstory, I’m really glad to hear that these women were able to come together and replace her missing tooth. Considering Scrappy was in diapers when her husband knocked it out of her mouth, it’s been a long time coming.
